MSNBC on IRS Scandal : THIS IS TYRANNY...

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tore into the federal government over the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups.

In addition to calling the admitted actions “mind-boggling,” the personality highlighted the assertion that “this government is using the Internal Revenue Service to target people with whom they disagree.” Others, like co-host Willie Geist, jumped in to say that the collective actions constitute ”tyranny.”

“When it comes to political speech, it’s sacrosanct. Our founding fathers meant for it to be sacrosanct,” Scarborough said, going on the lambaste the IRS. “Liberal and conservative Supreme Courts alike do not allow the government to tread on political speech. There is a wall around that, and the wall has been knocked down by the IRS for several years now.”

Geist mirrored these sentiments, as did other “Morning Joe” panelists and co-hosts. While he noted that other claims about the government coming after guns have been overblown, the threat to free-speech posed by the IRS in this instance, in Geist’s view, is a true government-led assault.

“There’s been many overblown claims of tyranny and abuse of power from the government over the last few years. We’ve heard those. We’re coming for your guns — that kind of thing,” he said. “This is tyranny. If this is the government, a nonpartisan agency coming after specific groups, this time it’s real.”

Scarborough also called for Obama to “fire people” and to come out condemning the “unspeakable” actions of the IRS in the harshest terms possible. Rather than sitting back and ignoring the scandal, he implored the president to demand answers.

Watch the segment, below:

Stewart is a comedian who has always been up front about his bias.

You guys are up tight crybabies.

He can have his bias, on a few certain issues I’ll even agree with him.
He is just not funny, which I thought was kind of a prerequisite for being a “comedian”.
It is funny that the Stewart fanboys are showing up squirting crocodile tears because I dared to criticize TDS.

I think he's a funny guy and I don't hold his bias against him, it's his show, but I don't have much interest in watching a show that is so slanted toward Democrats.

We didn't know that you set the bar for what is funny. Give us time to adjust. Also please give us an idea of who is funny so we can catch up. If you say Blue Collar comedy, please shoot yourself.

Oh I see, you think I’m treading on your “get to determine what is funny” turf. Well, you’ll just have to get over it. I have never found anything Stewart has done to be funny.

1. I was mocking people who act like Stewart parades himself as an unbiased political pundit. He doesn't. Simple as that. You weren't doing that, but felt the need to respond so i'll respond in kind.

2. You are not an authority on what is funny and what is not. You are one opinion in a sea of opinions. Obviously many people DO find him funny, which is why he still has a show. Savvy? You seem to understand this. What's the problem?

3. I don't watch his show. Do you routinely create and assign opinions to others in an attempt to dismiss them? I'm not a fanboy. I have a problem with people, on both sides, who take him too seriously.

I can't lie, Larry the Cable Guy can deliver some pretty clever lines if you look past the schtick.

Pretty sure no one is going to see that as you “mocking Stewart fans”.

As has been pointed out, quote exactly where I claim to be the authority on funny.
I don’t have a problem, I’ve clearly stated my opinion, you seem to have a problem with that, a problem which is entirely yours.

Larry can have a few zingers here and there but the act is so contrived that it gets on my nerves.
Engvall and Foxworthy can be funny though but they’re better off sticking to stand up, their attempts at a sitcom have failed miserably.

I don't care for those two so much, and I never would have thought I'd like Larry the Cable Guy, but I listen to a 24/7 comedy radio channel quite a bit and when he comes on he often makes me laugh.
I don't know that I could stand an hour of it or anything.

I was channel surfing one weekend and went by his show Only in America when he was wrangling gators so I watched it for a few. He got close enough to a gator that it turned and hissed at him, he squealed like a little girl and leapt a good 5 ft. backwards in one bound. Never knew the big guy could move like that, funniest thing I’ve seen him do.
